The free store !!!


EVERYTHING COMES WITH A PRICE TAG ???

With total crises situation with environmental crises as well as economic crises very rarely voices of hopes are being heard. A system built by us which is no longer serving us, on the contrary damaging us to an extent that survival of our species is at stake, there are new experiments popping all over us with the intent to work in cooperation with mother nature instead of competition or take over, few of them are aimed at reinstating the faith into nature and its abundance. A feeling of trust in universe that there is abundance of everything on earth and scarcity lies only in human mind.

DARIYA DIL DUKAAN !!!  As it is commonly called is a experiment happening all over India with same intent among several communities.
 
THE FREE STORE  is another small experiment to channelize this vast abundance. 

 

About the store —-

We are The Free Store !!!

An initiative towards a more effective and need-based redistribution of resources.

We are modelled on the concept of the non-monetary Free Stores that have been working in the US and several countries in Europe.

We are NOT barter-based. We believe in people chipping in resources they have but don’t need and taking away what they require.

So you have that extra keyboard you don’t think you’re gonna require? Let’s put it up!
And you see something up on our table you think you need? You can have it. 🙂

It’s just a small realization – it’s not give-and-take; it’s sharing.

Amanda Palmer: The art of asking



Gift culture at work in the music industry : How one artiste switched from making people pay for her music, to asking them to, while offering her work for free, and was more successful with the latter. And not just the payment aspect; she describes elements of gift culture all through her profession : couch surfing, crowd-sourcing resources when travelling and performing.
